MTN Entrepreneurship Challenge Powered by Jumia
AA – In February 2016, in Lagos, Nigeria, a brand new Pan-African competition was launched, the MTN Entrepreneurship Challenge (MTNEC) by Jumia. The first of its kind in Africa, the competition brought together over 1,000 entrepreneurs, students and investors to collaborate on ways to amplify and consolidate the continent’s entrepreneurs. Offering over $75,000 worth of prizes, the competition targeted over 60 universities in 13 countries across Africa, challenging students to develop a unique digital application or smart solution that will solve a tangible problem faced on the continent.
The prize is made up of a wide range of judges from several different backgrounds, industries and business, all with one important thing in common, a shared passion for the promotion of entrepreneurship in Africa.
